In this paper the authors present a curriculum design for Information Security Management, which was synthesized using the inputs from both the industry and academia. The top down curriculum design process carried out in Korea starts with the analysis of the job of an Information Security Manager (ISM), identifies the knowledge elements needed for successfully fulfilling the main responsibilities of the job and finally synthesizes them into seven courses suitable for flexible implementation. Additionally, a lateral occupational analysis of ISM reveals the value-skills (soft-skills) that should be considered in the actual implementation of the curriculum.
